On Tue, 7 Mar 1995, Prentiss Riddle cited my page of TeleScript info:

That is part of a collection of material about agentware and component-ware
( OpenDoc, SOM, OSA, ILU, CORBA, ... ) that are included as part of my
notes on a restricted/safe execution environment for Python which we 
diiscussed at the Python Workshop at NIST last November. 

<http://minsky.med.Virginia.EDU:80/sdm7g/Projects/Python/SafePython.html> 

( Some of the necessary hooks are implemented in the currently testing
beta version of Python. ) 


I haven't had time to update or reorganize the info on that page lately
( there's a lot of stuff just dumped into the /Misc subdirectory! ), so
I'll post the latest batch here: 

[ And I'll reserve my comments on some particular proposals and problems 
  for a later post. ] 



There is a software agents mailing list that has been somewhat
inactive while being moved from a Lookheed Listserv to one at
Sun, but from its charter, it would seem the appropriate place 
to discuss agent programming languages (TeleScript, safe-tcl,
etc. ) and protocols and compare implementation tricks. 

 Subscription address: <listserv@sunlabs.sun.com>

With a home page and archives at:

There is a lot of links and papers on Intelligent Agents at:

Ralph Becket's page on Intelligent Software Agents: 
	<http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/rwab1/agents.html>

Tim Finin's page on Software Agents:
	<http://www.cs.umbc.edu/agents> 

Andy Wood's page of Software Agents:
	<http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/~amw/agents>


The AI world uses "agents" for a number of different things including
programs like Coach or MicroSoft's BOB - which I wouldn't consider
"agents" in the strict sense, but much of the research IS relevant - 
especially in the area of how agents can interact and share information
with each other.
